Latest weekly Covid-19 rates for local authority areas in England

Here is Wednesday’s update of the rolling seven-day rate of new cases of Covid-19 for every local authority area in England.

The figures, for the seven days to September 6, are based on tests carried out in laboratories (pillar one of the Government’s testing programme) and in the wider community (pillar two).

The rate is expressed as the number of new cases per 100,000 people.

Data for the most recent three days (September 7-9) has been excluded as it is incomplete and likely to be revised.

In Bolton, 377 new cases were recorded in the seven days to September 6 – the equivalent of 131.1 per 100,000 people. This is the highest rate in England and it is up sharply from 72.0 in the seven days to August 30.
